Virus Rears Its Head Again in Nova Scotia
After twenty straight days with nothing to report, the microbiology lab in Halifax has confirmed one new case of coronavirus. The new finding was one of 203 tests conducted at the QEII.
The new case was brought into the province by a traveller. The individual self-isolated since returning to the province, as caution against further spread.
Premier Stephen McNeil says, “While we've made great progress in reducing the transmission of COVID-19, the reality is Nova Scotia will see more cases.” He urged everyone to do everything they can to keep COVID-19 at bay by respecting the rules and following public health advice.
The chief medical officer warned that new cases would be found. Dr. Robert Strang says, “Today's case shows that we cannot be complacent about this virus. Living with COVID-19 is part of our new normal and no one should let their guard down.” Strang added, “It remains vitally important for people to practise physical distancing wherever possible and wear a mask when this is difficult, follow all public health directives on how people can gather, staying home if unwell, and practise good hand washing and cleaning.”
